The Wizarding World of Avonhead is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Jacinda Ardern with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.486 billion Avonwards are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merrin. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Avewardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Gallions a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,435 Gallions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avonhead's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avonhead is ranked 38,760th in the world and 1,144th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 90,435.08 Standard Monetary Units.
